First of all, the quote in the title is correct. I always thought the “kingdom of light” and the “kingdom of righteousness” were the same thing, but perhaps Jeffress, in all his fervor, misspoke.
I wrote this yesterday, but it is certainly fitting here.
I recall Grant Wacker’s great line in his biography of Billy Graham: “The crucial point is that Graham continued to defend Nixon long after most Americans smelled a rat. When the first hint of something amiss came to light in 1972, Graham dismissed it as pettifogery.”
